ATLANTA —July 15, 2020 —BronzeLens Film Festival (BronzeLens), now in its 11th year will take place virtually Tuesday, August 11 – Sunday, August 16, 2020, in light of the COVID-19 global pandemic. BronzeLens: The Virtual Experience will continue the Festival’s unwavering commitment to showcasing films created by or about people of color that empower, entertain, and educate and give attendees the extraordinary opportunity to see the work of some of the world’s brightest filmmakers.

Over 75 official selections including shorts, features, documentaries, short documentaries, music videos, and webisodes from an international cadre of filmmakers will be screened representing the United States, Belgium, Israel, Canada, Jamaica, New Zealand, Pakistan, Poland, South Africa, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

“We are thrilled to present BronzeLens through a virtual experience to host our screenings and give voice to filmmakers whose works speak to diverse cultures, history, heritage, and humanity,” said Deidre McDonald, BronzeLens Film Festival Artistic Director. “Over the past 11 years, we have consistently built upon our mission to celebrate the art of filmmaking and to be a resource for filmmakers, content creators, talent, and film aficionados to engage, interact, and make lasting connections.”

BronzeLens 2020 will be an amalgam of industry panels, master classes conducted by leading professionals, in addition to presenting the Festival’s highly anticipated Sunday Brunch with the Brothers, the BronzeLens Awards Show, and its distinctive Cinema and Social Justice Sunday. Virtual mixers and nightly after-parties with guest DJs have been added to the festival’s event offerings.

About the BronzeLens Film Festival

BronzeLens Film Festival of Atlanta, Georgia, is a non-profit organization, founded in 2009, that is dedicated to bringing national and worldwide attention to Atlanta as a center for film and film production for people of color. Its mission is two-fold: to promote Atlanta as the new film mecca for people of color, and to showcase films and provide networking opportunities that will develop the next generation of filmmakers. Since its inception, BronzeLens producers have brought national and worldwide attention to Atlanta, helping to showcase the city as a leader in the thriving film industry.

In 2017 the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences approved BronzeLens as a qualifying festival for the Short Film Awards category. The short film that receives the BronzeLens Best Short Award is eligible to enter the Academy’s Short Subject competition for the concurrent season.
